They were efficient and they came when I asked them to come. When they got here, they did the work. We had a busted pipe up in the attic, and it was dripping down into my daughter's closet. They fixed the pipe, came back to put putty where it needed to be, and did the work in one day. I was very pleased. I called them last, so I didn't think they were going to be able to get there as fast as they did, but I appreciate the effort and I appreciate the work. I'd give them an A. They did excellent work. If I had to get more work done, I'd call them again.
Each time they have come has been good. They were prompt, went straight to work, knew what they had to do, and were quick. Benjamin Franklin has done the maintenance for the water heater that we bought through them. I'd give them an A+.
I like their promptness. I had a leak under my kitchen sink with water everywhere. I've been using them for about four or five years. Every time I have a plumbing issue, I call them. They used to have another name, but a friend told me about them, and that's how it started. They did a major job for us when we first got them. I'd absolutely give them an A+.
They did what they said they were going to do for the price they said they were going to do it for. They converted the piping for a tub fixture to a shower. I chose them over a different company because I was hoping I could get somebody faster since they were local. The gentleman that did the work was very nice. I'd give them an A+.
They did a good job. They came out on time and things like that. They've installed a new commode and did plumbing for a shower. They last did work for me about six months ago. They do pretty good work. I'd give them A+.
They come in, they're clean, they do a good job, and then they leave. We put in a new hot water heater, and that's all I've done with them. If a friend or neighbor asked about them, I would tell them to give them a try. In fact, a neighbor filled in for me when they were here, and she was very happy; she'll probably call them. I'd give them an A+.
They were on time and did what they said they would. We had a water heater problem and they fixed it. We called them back, they came out, and everything worked out fine. We've used them before. I'd recommend them. They deserve an A+.
They were prompt and efficient. They did what they had to do. They worked on a hot water heater. I have two of them; one of them went out, and they were able to fix it. I'd give them an A.
They fixed a hot water heater for me. The customer service was good, and I have never had to call them back for any issues. I would recommend them. They're an A.
They did a good job. They put a couple of water heaters in for me. They said they'd be here at a certain time, and they were here. I think I've used them before, and I would again. I'd give them an A.
